Universal Hotsticks are used by utility lineworker to perform Live-Line work on energized line equipment. Hotsticks are sometimes called “working sticks” since these tools are designed to be used as hotstick handles for dozens of tools that attach to the Universal Head (Spline) fitting. Universal Heads are equipped with wingscrews that allow the user to attach universal tools at different angles relative to the stick.
Another end fitting style is a Threaded Ferrule which is predominately used in the Western part of the United States. The Threaded Ferrule fitting accepts a 5/8”-11 thread-ed stud and has a hexagonal portion for locking with matching tools.
The insulating portion of these tools (yellow poles) meet ASTM F-711 and are constructed of electrical grade fiberglass reinforced thermoset resins that surround a uni-cell foam core.
